No Whales

It was unfortunate that although we had spectacularly blue skies, plus an enthusiastic group of strangers who became friends on board, we saw not one wee bit of the many whales who we heard were traveling through the area. At the very end we saw a small school of playful dolphins who were fun & fast to watch but they were not the gray whales we'd been hoping to see. It was particularly upsetting that the people on the 12 noon cruise had seen whales and we had not AND that there was no offer of a ticket for another day, because, if you see at least dolphins, although this is a whale watching cruise, then it counts as having seen "something". It was nice to be outside on the water, but it was not what we paid for.

We love the whale watching experience and try to book a sea venture out at least once a month during the whale watching season. This last trip I was lucky enough to get a wonderful whale-tail shot and numerous shots of dancing dolphins. It was magnificient!

1 Whale and 3000 Dolphins!

It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely do it again. We were able to see over 3000 dolphins in a pod and a Finchback whale. That was the highlight of my trip because I never saw a whale in the wild before! We went during the 1/2 price days on Tuesday at 12pm.

We had such a great time! The whole crew was friendly, knowledgeable and enjoyable. We had a pod of dolphins.......around 5,000 of them, following our boat, they were incredibly playful surfing on the wake from our boat, and then we saw a 70-80 ft. whale. We highly recommend this Whale Cruise!

Absolutely Breath-taking!

This was the highlight of my trip! Dana Wharf is located in a very quiant town and was clean and very well kept. From the moment we bought our tickets, the staff was friendly and very helpful. We bought our tickets early, so we enjoyed a cafe within walking distance before boarding the boat. Once we boarded, we left promptly, and all of the crew members were very enthusiastic and polite. The guide was very knowledgable on the different animals and migratory patterns, etc. We did not see any whales, BUT we did see somewhere between 2000-3000 dolphins! It was incredible! We rode with their pod for nearly an hour as they played with the waves off of our boat. It was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. It would be great for families or a group of friends, or even a date! Just remember to bring a light sweater and sunblock!

It was OK

The day was beautiful and the boat ride was nice -- we were supposed to be whale watching, but really it ended up being a 2 hour harbor cruise with no marine life and a nice time for my friend and I to chat and catch up for 2 hours. There really weren't any announcements or education about whales or anything like that, but I didn't expect a whole lot for the price, so I guess I got what I was expecting. They did give us a coupon to ride again for free since we didn't see anything, which was nice.

It was a beautiful day for a boatride.

It was a beautiful day for a boatride. Alas, we only saw a bit of a whale from a long distance away. It was apparent that your crew was trying very hard to find a whale for us. I appreciate your policy of a "whale check" when we aren't able to find any whales. We were with some people from Ohio who had never been on a boat so we had a lovely time and the whales would have been an exciting bonus.

We had a great time, and can't wait to do again!

Our experience overall was excellent, buying and printing tickets online was painless.....One arrived check in only took a couple of minutes The event itself was amazing, we loved every second of it.....It just so happen to be my boyfriends birthday, he was very impressed with the experience. The best example I have is, after our day was over my boyfriend who isn't amazed by the small things as myself, said that it was a once in life time experience and was very thankful for the birthday surprise. Therefore I would like to thank everyone involved in making his day a special one, it's a birthday he'll never forget! Thank you, Trish Riverside, CA

a whale of a good time

four of us found it a delightful day to cruise and look for whales. We only found a pod of dolphin numbering over 1000, and the captain made sure we got to see them all. Crew was great, opening the galley for a late lunch. Nice trip even without a whale sighting. We'll do this again.
